I have found a bump near my genital area which really hurts

This answer was rated:

Hi there, I have found a bump near my genital area which really hurts and feels like there is an inflammation of some kind. I don't know whether its HPV. I am in a relationship so I am sexually active but we use condoms. Is that something you can help with?
JA: The Obstetrician-Gynaecologist can help. To begin, apologies for the personal questions, but are you using any contraceptives other than condoms?
Customer: Only condoms
JA: Thanks for that. OK, more personal questions coming up I'm afraid - when was your last smear test or pelvic exam? Any irregular results from past exams?
Customer: A year ago I had a check for STDS which was negative for all of it
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history the Obstetrician-Gynaecologist should know?
Customer: I have had an outbreak of herpes 4 years ago but it never came back and this is very different, its like a big red bump that hurts.

It does not seems like an STI

This is most likely an infected cyst

You need to take Ibuprofen and an antibiotic like Flucloxacillin for this

This will get better in a week

As I said it is nothing concerning

Please do let me know if you have any other question
